“Peaceful and comfortable!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

We stayed in the Ah Ping Cottage. Our hosts were really helpful and friendly. We loved the trail walk. The rain-head shower was a bonus, too! Beautiful creek running through the property so bring suitable gear for a paddle. A+P, Sydney.

Room Tip: All cottages are private, but the one right down the end of the road would be our pick.

The spa cottage at Tin Dragon is magic - everything provided, very comfy, lots of friendly extra touches available on request. Great spot for magnificent walks -Ralph's Falls, Mt Victoria, Musselroe Beach, the Cuckoo Falls near Scottsdale - the Rhubarb Shop and gallery in Scottsdale- a great area all round!!

Room Tip: Go for the Spa room - nothing like sitting out under the stars in a hot tub with cold champagne and...

We stayed with 3 other couple for 2 nights, and then stayed on for our wedding anniversary. All 4 of our cottages were very clean and comfortable; 3 were romantic getaways for 2, including the outdoor spa (under amazingly clear skies); and the 4th was 2 bedroom, so lots of space. We gathered at the communal picnic area between the cottages, which was well set up; but could have chosen to walk down to the picnic table at the river side - only the weather was too warm to walk! There were many beautiful walks of various lengths close by; we used the provided canoe to paddle upstream; and swam in the swimming hole in the river - a new experience, and delightful - swimming through the reflections. The generous breakfast hamper lasted us a couple of mornings, and the cottage was also equipped with pasta, rice and flour if we'd needed a late night snack. We watched shooting stars, satellites and the Milky Way whilst sipping champagne at the picnic table...talked to the alpacas wandering by...took Rusty the dog for one of our walks. Just a magic spot, and very hospitable hosts.

Room Tip: Ah Ping and Ah Moy are two bedroom and furthest from the river; Chintock, Fon Hock and Ah Back are o...

We stayed there for 2 nights. Rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable. The kitchen has all the things we want and we had a wonderful meal during our 9-day jounary.
Also, the Alpaca are so cute and friendly. In fact, we are unable to find Alpaca early in the morning(they went to the other side of the farm). However, the host is so nice and he helped us to find them and even introduced the name of Alpaca to us one by one. He is very patient and helpful.
We had a very lovely time at the cottage and we highly recommended

We stayed there for our wedding anniversary and a bit of a fishing trip. It had all the special touches of a B&B such as breakfast hamper, fresh herbs from the garden and homemade fruitcake but with the cleanliness and privacy of a resort. We enjoyed a paddle in the provided canoe to watch the platypus at sunset and Fly fishing on the property. We had a fantastic stay and can’t wait to get back.

My partner and I stayed here for a weekend escape away from the world and had no idea what we were in for. So quiet and away from everything. The owners are very polite and the serenity? Well, all I can say is "How's the serenity". With a river rapping around the cottages, green grass right up to the waters edge and more wildlife than you can poke a stick at, you can quickly forget where you are.
The cottages contain literally everything from glad wrap to baking flower to plunger coffee and biscuits. Absolutely Picturesque. Will definitely return!

We stayed in the Chintock cottage for four nights and honestly didn't want to leave. Every detail was thought of to make our stay comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable. The kitchen had all the essential items to get us started, a breakfast hamper was provided, relaxing music, gas wood fire, oil burner, out door spa, gorgeous alpacas, and the beautiful river/hills surrounds with lovely hosts. The fresh veggies especially the kale were an added bonus.

It was a good base to explore from, and we visited the Bay of Fires and the cheese factory. There is a small supermarket to get supplies from before you enter the property as well. It's such a lovely place that you could just stay in and relax.
